Hello from Central Oregon in the high desert. My name is Clayton. My smoking experience goes back to the late 1960's and helping my Grampa smoke salmon, sturgeon, and smelt in a wood fired smoke house in Northwest Oregon. Lots of fish went through that old smoker in those days. Since then I have smoked in an old oven converted, a Brinkman all-in-one propane smoker, and a garage sale find wood fired vertcal barrel type smoker which is a PITA to keep going. I found this site while researching vertical propane smokers and just ordered a Landmann 3405GLAwhich should arrive Friday. I plan to season it and then break it in with a couple of whole chickens. I will take pics and hopefully post Qview. I would like to thank everyone for providing this wonderful site with all it's useful information and look forward to contributing whenever I can.
